perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to flj to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics then you don't know me. >> this storm undoubtedly is a wale wake-up call to those conservatives who want to leave disaster relief up to the states. turn it over to them. to those who want to privatize everything. the state of new jersey right now is overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources. the state's roar sources just aren't to help those without power or flooded out of their home. you need a total effort across the country in a crisis like there that's why there is a federal government. federal and local governments working together is the successful formula for the state of new jersey. it's going to take time. but to say to turn it over to the states and say

"momtrocious"? ♪ [ female announcer ] swiffer. now with the scrubbing power of mr. clean magic eraser. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." mitt romney's storm relief event in dayton, ohio, was more than it seemed. turns out the romney campaign, they bought $5,000 worth of supplies the night before, to make sure that, you know, this whole thing just kind of came off okay and looked good. well, the idea was to collect goods for the red cross. very noble. even though the red cross would always prefer cash donations for logistical reasons. the campaign was worried that there might not be enough donations since the event was changed at the last minute. so the night before the event, according to buzzfeed, campaign aides went to a local walmart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned foods, diapers, and put on display, while they waited for donations to come in. according to one staffer, the campaign confirmed to buzz feed, it did donate supplies to the relief effort, but would not specify just how much it spent. buzz feed also reported the that empty-handed supporters were told to grab som

insult the president continues to be the face of the romney campaign when it comes to these issues. >> and of course, the candidate himself has yet to make any kind of comment that he thinks that maybe mr. sununu may have been over the line. he continues to support him. does not command any kind of does not demand any kind of clarification. in fact, the statement he put out was anything but an apology. what does this say about romney's leadership, professor? >> it says that romney is ill equipped to deal with issues that are uncomfortable. he has no social responsibility when it comes to arguing with his own representatives about how they should appropriately represent him. or it suggests that he is, you know, implicitly at least in agreement with the vicious attitudes of mr. sununu. that would be quite dangerous that would be quite striking, and fundamentally, that would be an extension of the beliefs of a campaign that's not been very sensitive around the issues of race. when you couple that insensitivity with the effect of these remarks, all you can conclude, ed, is that this is

. joining me tonight, bob king, president of the united autoworkers. mr. king, good to have you with us tonight. this is -- >> great to be with you, ed. >> you bet. this is about conflict of interest. but what do you think mitt romney allegedly did that was wrong? why have you called for this? >> well, because we're told by our legal department that he violated the government ethics laws and he did not disclose where he's got a conflict of interest, his investments in delphi corporation. it's so hypocritical, as you said, for him to criticize the loan and go in like a vulture capitalist and buy the stock at a low price and extort general motors, costing the taxpayers more money. he and his friends at the vulture capitalist made as you said 3,000% to 4,000% return on their investment in delphi by holding up general motors and costing the government more money. >> all right. let's talk -- >> costing taxpayers more. >> let's talk about this extort and hold up general motors. now, delphi is critical to the automobile manufacturing business. they, of course, manufacture parts that go into
